  1. Auto spell checker wants to capitalise new lines after forced line breaks

    This is a bug report for the new auto spell checker feature in Illustrator 2020.

    It does not understand that when you force a line break (using shift-return, not making a new paragraph with return), it’s not a new sentence.

    So it wants to capitalise the first word on the new line.

    This makes no sense and does not match the way it works in InDesign.

    Thanks for fixing that!

  2. Large Amounts of Text overrun text area, disregard justification

    I'm using Illustrator CC (2017).
    I am creating a 6'x4' poster, where a single text box holds the entire text of the Bible (~730,000 words) as a single string of text (regular spaces between words, but no paragraph returns) in Helvetica Neue Lt Std, 107 Extra Bold Condensed, 3 pt size with 2.7 pt leading, all caps, full justification, default hyphenation. I am using a text wrap around a compound object with a transparent fill to create a negative space in the midst of this text block (in my case, that compound object is text converted to a shape, so…

  3. Paragraph Styles in Illustrator are Hot Garbage

    Adobe, fix this already. Don't waste any more time investing in AI **** until this kind of stuff is fixed.

  4. Slanted instances are not properly sorted

    When a variable font has ***** axis and right leaning instances (common oblique styles) the Oblique instances gets sorted before the Romans on the font menu dropdown. See attachment.

    According to the OT spec, right leaning instances must use negative values, so I‘m guessing Adobe’s font menu is sorting instances by slnt coordinates in ascending direction when it should be in the other direction.

    This is not only bad and uncommon for users but is also pushing font developers to make fonts against the spec just to circunvent this situation. Plase fix.

    Note. All the fonts tested have proper STAT…

  5. Bullets are forced when pasting a text

    Please take a look at the GIF.
    I paste a text (using Paste without formatting) into a mixed selection, made with Select All command. The text has both bulleted and non-bulleted paragraphs.
    I expect it to NOT have bullets enabled, since the first paragraph in the selection does not have it.
    Instead, Illustrator forces bullets for the whole pasted text.

  6. 行頭禁則文字に関わる和欧文間隔をカスタマイズ可能に!

    Illustratorの日本語組版で、たとえばプリセットの文字組アキ量設定「行末約物半角」を元に、和欧文間隔を「0%」にカスタマイズしても、そのカスタマイズの結果は、何故か「行頭禁則文字」に分類される文字種には効果がありません。
    ※添付ファイルをご参照くださいませ(macOS Catalina上のCC2021にて作成)。

    日本語組版の中では、デフォルトの「25%」アキを「12.5%」あるいは「0%」としたいという作業は少なからず発生しますが、上記のような挙動では、作業者の負担になるばかりです。

    可能であれば、「文字組アキ量設定和欧文間隔のカスタマイズが、行頭禁則文字にも効くように」改善することを希望します。
    挙動を変更していただければ、作業者の負担も軽減され、喜んで受け入れられるに違いありません。

    なお、このような挙動の変更は、「文字組みアキ量設定に頼らずなんらかの方法で和欧文間隔を変更した既存ファイル」にはあまり影響がないものと考えますが、変更していただくならば、【その変更を周知】していただくことは大切なことだと申し添えておきます。

    よろしくお願いします。

  7. "Clear Overrides" in Paragraph Styles menu is needlessly picky

    I can clear overrides only if the selected text is all in a single paragraph style. If I select multiple lines in different styles (which happens all the time in lists of text, calendar items, etc), the thing is always dimmed out.

    This makes it needlessly tedious to get all the text back into a known set of styles, so that the styles themselves can be redefined and the text will update accordingly. (Example: taking formatted text to a new and differently-sized layout.)

  8. Missing fonts issue

    It's not reading Adobe fonts. It keeps saying to activate the font every time I open a document. The program hangs trying to activate a font, making the file not work properly "without" a font that was perviously activated.

  9. Text will not change fill colour to what has been selected

    WIndows 10, Illustrator 23.0.3: After selecting text, I try to change the fill colour either using the eyedropper tool or the swatches panel. I expect the text to change to that colour. However, while the colour window shows the colour has been changed, the text doesn't actually change colour. I have to outline the text in order to get it to change colour.

    Need More Info  ·  Anish Kumar responded

    Hi Melina ,

    Thanks for reporting this issue, Illustrator team really appreciate this.
    As per attached screen shot , for the selected Text object your fill is below the Characters in appearance panel.
    Can you kindly move the Fill above the characters and change fill. This will hopefully resolve your problem.
    In order to identify the root cause , can you kindly provide us eyedropper setting snapshot ,you can find eyedropper settings by double click on eyedropper tool .

    Thanks
    Anish

  11. Glyph rendering bug with bitmap OT-SVG fonts

    Glyphs that consist of a single-colored bitmap image are not rendered in text frames nor in the Glyphs panel.

    When we start using them within a text frame, they also break the rendering of all subsequent characters (they disappear).

    To reproduce, enter the character "m" in the attached AI file.

    Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience. Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

  14. Cannot undo paragraph or character style changes or deletions

    If I make any changes to paragraph of character styles, I cannot undo them, even if I delete a style. Changes are not registered at all as undo states. The only way to undo is to revert to a previous save.

  16. テキストフレームでグローバルスウォッチの変更が適用されない。

    OS/macOS10.13〜、Windows10 (20H2)
    ver/25.4.4、26.0.3

    エリアテキストオブジェクトのパスにグローバールスウォッチを適用し、そのオブジェクトを複製した場合、描画がグローバルスウォッチの編集に追随しなくなる。

    再現手順
    1.エリアテキストを作成しテキストパスのみを選択して塗りにグローバルスウォッチを適用した上Command(ctrl)+option(ALT)を押しながらドラッグし複製する。
    2.選択を外した状態にし、適用したグローバルスウォッチをダブルクリックし編集に入る。
    3.プレビューにチェックを入れた上でカラーを編集する。
    4.コントロールバーやカラーパネルでの表示は変化するがテキストパスの塗りは変化しない。OKをクリックし編集を終了する。
    5.スウォッチパネルなどの表示は正しく更新されるが1.のテキストバスの塗りは表示が変わらない。

    期待する結果
    グローバルスウォッチを適用したテキストエリアオブジェクトのパスでも他のオブジェクトと同様にグローバルスウォッチの変更に表示を追随させる。

    現状の挙動
    エリアテキストのパスに適用した塗りがグローバルスウォッチの変更に追随しない。

    対応策
    一旦アウトライン表示に切り替えてからプレビュー表示を行うとグローバルスウォッチの値にて再描画される。

    この挙動を細かく見てみると複製したエリアテキストのパスに対する処理に問題がありそうです。1点だけだと再現しません。また、オブジェクト的にはカラー値は更新されていますので単純に再描画が行われていないように思われます。
    以下のコミュニティスレッドをご確認下さい。

  17. Bug on the All Caps (case) open type feature

    If the typeface uses GPOS in the "case" feature to relocate a glyph, Illustrator seems to ignore it. It is working well no InDesign and and Photoshop.
    So the "case" feature is broken for glyphs that reposition with GPOS.

    I am a typeface designer and developer, but I found the same complaint from another person: https://forum.glyphsapp.com/t/contextual-gpos-adjustments-for-brackets-symbols-question/17569/3
